Pledges from the Global Fund’s Sixth Replenishment Conference in October 2019 are noted on our list:
Lombard Odier and the Global Fund launched in January 2018 a strategic partnership to rethink traditional approaches to investment and philanthropy – to make it easier for more people to contribute to the fight against some of the world’s most pressing health challenges.
Lombard Odier and the Global Fund have come together in a shared belief that private sector investment is a vital resource that needs to be better employed to support the sustainable development agenda – particularly ending HIV, TB and malaria as epidemics, and building strong, resilient systems for health.
The partnership looks for ways to help the private sector contribute to the Global Fund’s vital work, while addressing investors’ need to meet their financial goals; for example, structures that allow investors to share a proportion of the gains they receive from putting their capital to work.
These efforts will also be designed to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals more broadly, particularly the first five: no poverty, zero hunger, good health and well-being, quality education and gender.
